Selecting the Right Roofing Company
Buying a new roof system is an important investment. Before you spend your money, spend some time learning how to evaluate the roofing contractors so you get the kind of results you expect—a quality roof system at a fair price. You should insist on working with a National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA) member. All roofing contractors are not alike, and you should prequalify roofing contractors to get the job done right the first time. You should be sure to find a local company with local references that will be in town in the future to stand behind their workmanship, beyond the manufacturer’s warranty.
Keep a healthy skepticism about the lowest bid. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Many fly-by-night contractors’ below-cost bids seem attractive, but these contractors often are uninsured and perform substandard work. Remember, price is only one of the criteria for selecting a roofing contractor. Professionalism, experience and quality workmanship should also weigh heavily in your decision.
Key Reminders When Choosing a Roofing Contractor
As much as you would want to have a new roofing system installed ASAP, there are certain factors you need to consider when choosing a roofing contractor.
- Insurance. A roofing provider must have insurance coverage. This is one of the non-negotiables, as a trusted contractor should have liability insurance and worker’s compensation. This will keep you and your house protected in case something unfortunate happens during the installation.
- Open Communication Lines. The next thing to consider is the way the contractors communicate with you. Renovation Team puts a premium on open communication lines to help ensure that our clients get what they truly want. We will get you involved right from the get go; from the planning stages down to the actual installation. We will keep you updated of the developments so you wouldn’t be left in the dark.
